About Jessy

I am a professional proofreader and writing professor, with an undergraduate degree in English and Theater and an MFA from Northwestern. I teach screenwriting, play writing, and creative writing, but I also have a lot of experience with academic writing/essays. Aside from my English degree and my teaching experience, I also spent a year at Oxford during my undergraduate degree, researching, writing, and digging into essays in a one-on-one setting once a week. This added to both my essay-writing savvy and my strong background in English literature and theater history.

Because of my proofreading background, I am also especially helpful when it comes to explaining the rules of grammar and citations for many different styles. In my work as a proofreader, I also do software testing. I'm able to provide training on Microsoft Office Suite, Final Cut Pro, general PC and Mac usage, and a number of other specialized software.

I am comfortable teaching all ages. I have experience teaching preschoolers, elementary students, high schoolers, college students, and adults! I am friendly and encouraging, and I genuinely want to see my students succeed.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Bible Studies

I took Old Testament, New Testament, and Biblical Narrative courses in my undergraduate degree. I took an additional course in Old Testament studies at the Vineyard Training Center. I was a rotating teacher for a few years at a church in Fort Collins, Colorado, specializing in Old Testament Narrative.

Public Speaking

I excelled at my official Public Speaking course in college. But more importantly, I am an experienced teacher and writer. I recently refreshed my public speaking strategies by taking an advanced storytelling class at 2nd Story.

Theatre

I have a minor undergraduate degree in Theatre and an MFA in Playwriting. I am a produced playwright who teaches playwriting workshops. I also have extensive training in in theatre history, theatre-as-literature, and production/DIY theatre.

Video Production

I hold an MFA in Writing for the Screen + Stage from Northwestern, where I took a special interest in our Graduate Production Workshop. I enjoyed it so much that I took many other workshops on my own time to learn about other video production equipment. I have also filmed and edited many comedy videos. I specialize in Final Cut Pro.
